Toys from the Past
by

This a complete series (it comprised only three models) of fantasy tractor dragsters made by Ferrero for their famous chocolate eggs. I do not collect them and they are too new for this blog, but I liked them so much, that I decided to keep them.They are relative simple and carry plain bright colours. They are all made up of three pieces that fit each other (one of them chromed) plus the wheels ..read more

#1039 BRAVESTARR – MARSHALL BRAVESTARR (1987)
Toys from the Past
by

There is not much I can say about Bravestarr which has not been told already one hundred times. We all know more or less what this toyline (and the corresponding cartoons) is/are about, and which the characters that were made into a figure are.I do not collect this specific figures, but as I usually get many figures in lots, exchanges, flea markets and so on, I have come through them many times ..read more

#1038 PILEN – MASERATI GHIBLI (MOD. 507) (1973)
Toys from the Past
by
1M ago
This model is the original one from 1973 and it looks great, as most models from this manufacturer and that approximate year do. As a matter of fact, the Pilen models from the 70s are comparable in quality to other European brands of the time. This is acknowledged by most collectors, and is reflected on the prices that are paid for models in mint condition.This model was found in Austria, which ..read more

#1037 EFSI – MERCEDES LONG TRAILER “SHELL” (around 1985)
Toys from the Past
by
1M ago
I have presented in the past several Efsi trucks and trailers, but this is my first “long trailer” made by the Dutch company. I found it in a flea market, and I liked it a lot. It represents a long tanker from Shell, in bright yellow and red. The truck is identical to the ones we already saw, so I am not going to comment on it. The trailer is, surprisingly, not very well done. The metallic base ..read more

This is the cover from the latest issue of Figuras En Acción (short: FEA), and, as you can see, we bring a mixture of topics as heterogeneous as it gets.The main articles deal with toys from the TV series Maple Town (with a special focus on Spanish merchandising), the off-road Scalextric STS 4x4 made in Spain by Exin, an extensive article about Matchbox´s Regular Wheels era, never-seen before ..read more

#1035 FOREST FAMILIES – CAT and TIGER FAMILIES (Around 1989)
Toys from the Past
by
3M ago
   Forest Families was the cheap knock-off to Sylvanian Families or Maple Town (La aldea del Arce in Spanish, Les petits Malins in French, a powerful license of the late 80s.) made by MC Toy (May Cheong) from Hong-Kong. At the time this company had already some major success with cheap, but qualitative die-cast cars that were sold worldwide. With the time, this company would change its ..read more

#1034 VARITEMAS S.L. - ROBIN HOOD (AROUND 1999)
Toys from the Past
by
3M ago
Card manufacturing in Spain has been traditionally dominated by Heraclio Fournier, followed by other brands like Naipes Comas. But there are many other manufacturers, like Mas Reynals from Barcelona, a company founded in 1989 that produced lower quality and cheap decks of cards that looked very similar to other more famous ones. Their products were sold some "100 pesetas" shops, the equivalent of ..read more

#1033 DARDA - FERRARI F1, BMW-WILLIAMS F1 and TEAM DARDA (Around 2006)
Toys from the Past
by
4M ago
These three cars by Darda are among the most modern in my collection. Darda is still selling and producing very good-looking cars and tracks, but they are not precisely cheap toys. Maybe that is why they are so hard to spot today. Two of these Formula ones represent the models driven by Michael Schumacher (RN5) in the 2006 season and one of the three drivers that ran for BMW-Williams in 2005 ..read more

#1032 TRANSFORMERS – POWERMASTER DREADWIND with HI-TEST (1988)
Toys from the Past
by
4M ago
It took me around 15 years to complete this toy. I found the plane/figure first so many years ago, then the two guns around 5 years ago, and finally, last year, I got the Powermaster figure in a lot where it was not depicted! It was a “gift” from the seller. I had actually bought other Transformers stuff, but not this part.This model is one of my favorite transformers in my collection (I do not ..read more

#1031 CORGI JUNIORS – CITROEN DYANE, 2CV and 2CV (1975, 1985 and Around 2005)
Toys from the Past
by
5M ago
Each die-cast manufacturer usually focuses on the car brands that are more popular in their own countries, and specifically on those that are manufactured there. It is, after all, a business, so cars that are well known sell better. I say this because Corgi Juniors is based in Whales, United Kingdom, while Citroen is a French car manufacturer, so the models shown here are kind of rarities. Really ..read more
